-um server option

Displays database server messages in a new window within

{ dbsrv11 | dbeng11 } -um ...
Applies to

Mac OS X


The -um option allows you to connect to the instance, if it is running, and displays messages in a new window within The -um option must be used with the other options required to start the database server. Server messages appear in this window instead of in the shell. Closing this window shuts down the database server. If a connection to the instance cannot be established, the database server does not start.

For the database server to connect to a instance, both must be running in the same Mac OS X security context. For example, a database server started from an ssh session cannot find a instance that was started by Launch Services.

For information about starting the database server as a daemon, see -ud server option.
